This soap is GOOD

Literally… this is good soap! Ok, I’m done with the puns.

Last summer, Jason and I were in Whole Foods in Buckhead checking out the vitamins/supplements sections. Next to the vitamins we saw (and smelled) a beautiful display of soaps, bath salts, lotions, etc. I’m a freak about soaps—like, I love soaps so much and I always buy artisan soaps where ever I can find them, so of course we smelled every single one of them…

And then we bought 3 bars because I had to try them. It’s a shame, really, because now I’m absolutely hooked on Good Soap and I bought a bag of 10 bars last time I went to Whole Foods—no joke. I have enough soap to last me the rest of the year or longer, so naturally, next time I go to Whole Foods I will be buying another bag of soap. * sigh *

Good Soap is made with Certified Fair Trade shea butter and coconut oil and is fortified with goat milk. It’s triple-milled and lasts a long time. It feels so smooth and creamy on the skin, and it’s actually really good for the skin leaving it moisturized rather than stripping skin of natural oils.

Right now I’m using the strawberry soap (the pink bar in the picture.) It contains actual strawberry seeds, and they act as little exfoliation beads! They really do a great job at scrubbing off dead skin. So far, this is the best bar to get when it comes to wanting an exfoliation soap bar.

The peppermint bar (white bar with speckles in the picture) is extremely invigorating! This bar will wake you up. The smell of peppermint is very strong and opens up your senses— I love this on for a morning shower to start the day energized. The little speckles in the bar provide some exfoliation as well, but not as much as the strawberry bar from my experience.

Besides smelling amazing + feeling like a silky sheet rubbing over your body, Good Soap is a good cause:

“1% of the total annual sales of Good Soap™ is donated to the Whole Planet Foundation, which works to alleviate poverty through microcredit in communities around the world. We also committed to use the funds generated by the sales of Good Soap™ to build a kindergarten in Togo each year. We believe kindergarten gives young children the basic skills and knowledge they need to be successful in primary school and improves the likelihood they will remain in school and graduate from secondary school.

In 2014, the Kaboli Kindergarten was built and is now attended by 60 boys and girls. We also constructed a latrine for students in Kouloumi. Here in the US, the convenience and luxury that clean and safe toilet facilities provide is often forgotten. In 2015, we broke ground on a kindergarten in the village of Adjengré. Our Good Soap™ initiative will continue to fund these truly impactful projects in our Togolese communities.”

Isn’t that amazing? And all of the ingredients + craftmanship come straight from members in Togo, West Africa:

Shea Butter: Certified Fair Trade, handcrafted by Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative in Togo, West Africa. Traditional, unrefined shea butter is extra moisturizing and protective.

Coconut Oil: Certified Fair Trade, virgin coconut oil is hand extracted using traditional fermentation method by Alaffia Coconut Cooperative in Togo, West Africa. Coconut adds additional moisture and antioxidants.

African Black Soap: Certified Fair Trade, African Black Soap is made following traditional, centuries-old recipe and methods by Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative members in Togo, West Africa. Handcrafted, native oils – Shea Butter and Palm Kernel Oil are saponified with ashes to create a gentle, simple soap with multiple uses.

Goat Milk: Adds additional moisture and a luxurious feel to Good Soap

Good Soap is exclusively sold at Whole Foods Market. I personally shop at Whole Foods Market – Buckhead Atlanta. This post is not sponsored! I purchase Good Soap way too frequently with my own hard cash. I genuinely love this product, and I love that purchase proceeds go toward making an impact in the world.

Do you have a product you love that also makes an impact or is a part of a good cause? I’d love to check it out! Let me know <3

    Hey Elizabeth!
    I love the recommendations for products and foods that I would otherwise probably not know about. I have gotten several things you have blogged about (or posted on IG) and I am loving them all (multivitamin, pre-workout, charcoal toothpaste, Epsom salt, pillowcase, Lilybod, etc.)! I am trying this soap as soon as I make it to Whole Foods. Your blog and IG are awesome, keep it up with these great recommendations!

    I love to find products like this, Organic and Fair Trade Certified. I will have to check out the health and beauty section next time I am at Whole Foods, unfortunately I never make it to that section to distracted by all the good food. 🙂 Thank for writing such a insightful review on this product!!!

    I love the look of this soap! If it feels as nice as it looks, I’m sold! I never really thought about fair trade soap, but I’m going to keep that in mind.
